n Monday, April 23rd, the Southern New Jer- sey Chapter of the

Appraisal Institute hosted its annual dinner meeting joining appraisers with assessors at the Adelphia Grand Ballroom in Deptford. Well over 100 people attended this event. In Assessors andApprais- ers in Today’s Market , par- ticipants heard a true state of the industry report. NJ State Board of Real Estate Apprais- ers President Denise Siegel discussed any and all issues taking place in the apprais- ing field, including concerns arising from complaints and federal regulation changes. Assistant Director of the NJ State Division of Taxation Patricia Wright discussed similar issues in the assessing field. Rick Kline and Dennis Scardilli helped attendees to understand the difference between individual value es- timations and mass appraisal techniques used in assessing. Additionally, they outlined the Monmouth and Gloucester County programs and where these programs stand. After dinner, in a seminar A View from the Bench , Judge Pat- rick DeAlmeida discussed tax court issues & recent cases from across the state. As al- ways, his insight and experi- ence was a great benefit to all that filled the Ballroom. As part of the dinner meet- ing portion of the event, SN- JAI President Jerry McHale presented the MAI designa- tion certificate to Jerry Mc- Carron, MAI. The final vote to merge the Central NJ Chapter into the Southern NJ Chapter also occurred at this chapter meet- ing. Changes to the bylaws were unanimously approved, making the merger process complete. In the spirit of serving the community, the chapter col- lected non-perishable food items to donate to local food banks at the installation din- ner. The response was very positive, with over 37 pounds of food (and money!) donated to support community food bank efforts in Southern NJ.
